Loving long weekends lots. I noted that this time last year I wrote about sorting the colours for this space – and Dr. Max Lûscher said, ‘Your Existing Situation – Is seeking a solution to existing problems or anxieties, but is liable to find it difficult to decide on a right course to follow.’
Today, the good doctor had this to say about me and my situation…
Your Existing Situation: Imaginative and sensitive; seeking an outlet for these qualities–especially in the company of someone equally sensitive. Interest and enthusiasm are readily aroused by the unusual or the adventurous.
Your Stress Sources: Resilience and tenacity have become weakened. Feels overtaxed, worn out, and getting nowhere, but continues to stand his ground. He feels this adverse situation as an actual tangible pressure which is intolerable to him and from which he wants to escape, but he feels unable to make the necessary decision.
Your Restrained Characteristics: Feels cut off and unhappy because of the difficulty in achieving the essential degree of cooperation and harmony which he desires. Able to achieve satisfaction through sexual activity.
Your Desired Objective: Considers the existing circumstances disagreeable and over-demanding.
Your Actual Problem: Refuses to allow anything to influence his point of view.
Your Actual Problem #2: The fear that he might be prevented from achieving the things he wants drives him to the exploitation of all types of experience, so that he may categorically deny that any of them has any value. This destructive denigration becomes his method of concealing hopelessness and a profound sense of futility.
How rude. Hmmm, perhaps if the good doctor was to offer an expanded range of this season’s colours… Check out what he has to say about you…
By the way, on a more pleasantly colourful note, you can see Danny Gregory demonstrating how to watercolour al fresco in LA in a rather good video – or perhaps dream up your own colours. I’ve started to make inroads on the bulb planting under the roses – in Spring, as with all of my recent garden design work, the colour will be ‘slut’ – i.e. the more colur the better. Who needs a riot of colour? A frenzy of colour? A carnival, a cornucopia, a crescendo of colour? I just want MORE colour, and, gentle reader, let me assure you, in the miserable grey Spring days, more IS more.
